I had read two other Peter Clines book, 14 & Fold. They were really very good and quite enjoyable. I decided to give the "EX" series a chance based on those experience - and it turned out well. It's an odd mix, super heroes and zombies, but Clines is good and he is able to ground a questionable premise into a compelling and entertaining story. So yeah, if you into this genre, it's difficult for me to imagine it getting better than this. Narration, great and if you have lived, or do live in or around the Los Angeles area, you'll enjoy his geography. I recommend this book.
If you love Superheroes or zombie apocalypse stories and can even do much as tolerate the other, you will really enjoy this book. The writing is tight, swift, and exciting. The narration is of the highest quality. This is a great series start.
I decided I'm not really interested in the EX series after stopping before the end of Ex-Heroes. This book has a lot of great reviews, but it just wasn't for me.
I'm not sure if I'd listen to any of Peter Clines' other books. I found his writing style a bit lacking in the environmental detail arena. In this novel, I felt like I would've been better off if I had an intimate knowledge of Hollywood and LA. A lot of the events taking place have all these streets and monuments referenced but nothing really gets into detail for the reader.
The narrators were good voice actors - however, I didn't enjoy having the mix of both of them acting side by side.
Not much inspiration. There were some clever parts, but nothing really made me want to press on other than hoping it would get better.
Just not my genre. Not being a Zombie story fan to start and with high marks on reviews I gave it try, after 6 hours I just kept waiting for the drop and it never came, From the reviews of persons stating they were pleasantly surprised I dont see what. Blah Blah Blah same same old boring Zombie killing. I found it a complete 10 hours of wasted time. I usually will quit listening to a lousy book but stuck it out. I am the fool.
Not a zombie book.
I thought they did a good job.
IF your not a Zombie fan this will just reassure you to continue that way. Blah Blah Blah same same old boring Zombie killing.
The so-called heroes did a terrible job protecting themselves and the world during the zombie apocalypse. Sadly, they're so incredibly poor at any kind of planning or mental cognition that I found myself yelling at the book. I could never recommend a book about a group of people this....dumb.
I listened all the way through and like the idea, setting and plot. The characters were a bit too cartoonish and the writing mediocre. will not listen to any of the sequels.
